Dumbarton is a lovely town in West Dunbartonshire in Scotland. Dumbarton is situated on the north bank of the River Clyde around 13 miles from Glasgow. Some of you may know that Dumbarton was the capital of the ancient Kingdom of Strathclyde and was also a Royal burgh.
The main attraction to visit is the Dumbarton Castle sited on a volcanic rock and overlooking River Clyde. Be aware because there are more than 500 steps to reach atop but is worth it. The view is breathtaking. The architecture adapted the 18th century Georgian military architecture, so it may be very interesting for some of you. And for those among you who like picturesque views – there are astonishing views from the Tower Crag.
Also while you are in Dumbarton area the visit in Geilston Garden is a must – the property of the National Trust for Scotland (valued info for the member) which was developed around two hundred years ago. There are walled garden, kitchen garden, and wooded area and it’s open to the public.
